Do you work in an office, have questions about the roots of Australian colloquialisms, have a dog that isn’t purebred, or feel the existential dread that is adulthood?

Then join Emily Grace and Jacob Jackman in their hilarious joint stand-up comedy show Rooted.

With new material ripe for the picking, the two comedians’ joke about their lives, plants and also goblins. They both share a visible passion for performing, with great stage presences and a skill for comedic timing.

Jacob takes over the stage for the first half of the show, with fun impressions and a side of dark humour. His bit about Garfield was both unexpected and hilarious, with a unique use of props that enhanced the joke significantly.

Emily was a little more subdued than Jacob, however her touch of awkwardness only added to her relatable comedy. Her routine exhibits the show’s title, as she has grown her own roots and settled into adulthood. With a new job, house, dog, husband, and of course a new garden.

The close-knit seating of Hell’s Kitchen in the Rhino Room suited the show well. The small room giving the performance an intimate feeling and enhancing the loud laughter of the audience.

If you’re interested in a fun night out with your friends and family, this is definitely the show to start off your evening with.
